Lance Henriksen is my Dad!
Well…not really, he just plays one in a movie.
I have a very, VERY bit part in a film called “This Old Machine”, and our most excellent friend Travis found it on sale in Walmart, and now it’s available on Amazon Prime! I got the part due to the fact that the actress playing the role had an emergency and couldn’t come to filming, so the producer called me in a panic because I was local and “looked like a mom”.
There are worse reasons to be chosen for a role. Cuz, yannow, I am a mom.
He knew my number because James (hubby) and I had been building set pieces for the film up in Baldwin. I got to meet some very lovely people, and it was nice that my husband in the film was someone I knew! Not that I did much more than cling to his hand looking terrified.
It was very good fun and I’m grateful I got to meet one of my favorite actors, Mr. Henriksen. He could not have been more gracious.
Although it was rather mean of him to make faces at me when they were getting reaction shots. >:-(
